Council Flood Recovery Works
Since the February 2022 severe rain and flood event, Ipswich City Council has been busy identifying and assessing widespread damage.

Council are committed to working with the community to rebuild our assets, while taking into account the long-term resilience of the structures we are building.

Severe Weather February 2022 Recovery Plan
Flood waters caused devastating damage across Ipswich to almost 600 dwellings, 300 businesses, more than 250 vehicles, losses of livestock and livelihoods. The ongoing impacts of long-term displacement of people, uninhabitable homes and lengthy rebuild processes are key features of recovery efforts going forward.
The Severe Weather February 2022 Recovery Plan outlines a range of actions, works and activity being undertaken by Council and many other groups and agencies to help our community reach a point where they are sustainable and resilient. The Recovery Plan outlines the recovery process as a whole of government, whole of community responsibility, and the work of many groups and agencies contributing to this work are acknowledged.
